Get the new year resolution working early and go for a run with hundreds of other Santas to raise money for local charities.

The Reading rotary club’s annual event has raised over £125,000 to date and allows anyone to find out what running in a fake, massive beard feels like.

Register for the 5k run here.

Getting there

It couldn’t be easier as the Forbury Gardens are just a short warm-up walk from most town centre and Reading Station bus stops. Market Place, Blagrave Street and Reading Station bus stops are the closest to the start line.
